We know what the EDL are attempting to do; shift focus away from our real enemies, the politicians, bankers and bosses, and place the blame for our economic and political strife on workers with a different skin colour who face the same crap from their bosses as we do. In Luton, the EDL beat up a man simply for being Asian when they were left to march through the town unopposed. In Leeds, EDL supporters broke off from the main protest to go and intimidate the local gay district. In Stoke they threatened Asian businesses and the workers there. It is evident that these people don’t actually want to challenge Islam as a religion, but use it, like the BNP do, as an excuse to target Asian and immigrant workers, splitting our class on abstract lines and diverting the attention from the people who are really harming us, the EDL are doing the job of the politicians in Westminster.
Oppose the EDL on 30th May! More info on their march will be posted.
